Gold Coast Hub

The Global Shapers Community is a network of young people driving dialogue, action and change. We believe in a world where young people are central to solution building, policy-making and lasting change.

Born out of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is a network of inspiring young people under the age of 30 working together to address local, regional, and global challenges.

With more than 8500 members, the Global Shapers Community spans 394 citybased hubs in 156 countries. In each city, teams of Shapers self-organize to create projects that address the needs of their community.

Projects are wide-ranging including responding to disasters, combating poverty, and fighting climate change. Shapers are diverse in expertise, education, income, and race, but are united by their desire to catalyze change.

The Global Shapers Gold Coast hub meets on the traditional lands of the Yugambeh peoples (Logan City, Gold Coast, Scenic Rim and Tweed City regions of Australia). 

Situated in the south-east corner of the state of Queensland, the Gold Coast stretches along 57 kilometres of coastline and is home to over half a million people.  It is known for being a leading tourism, business and events city boasting the best beaches and arguably one of the best lifestyles in the world. 

The Gold Coast and Logan city catchment areas symbolise a place where Global Shapers Gold Coast members live, work or play, and as an action-oriented team, we are drawn together by a common desire to create impact in the areas of climate change, health and aspects that shape the future of our city.
